Great Comedy-Compliments his Prior Installment

"Brad Stine has made a name for himself as a Christian Conservative Comedian. He fills a niche in a market inundated with those of the oppositie political bent.
This DVD, like the last one, Brad Stine: A Conservative Unleashed, is a live audience performance. Brad has a nice rapport with his audience and his sense of timing and his clever selection of a wide array of content makes for a solid show. There's something for everyone here, and its nice to see a comedy act that my 8 year-old could watch that is familiy-friendly. I suppose if you are a liberal, you may not like some his politically-oriented comments, but if you enter with an open mind there's plenty of 'oh yeah everyone feels that way' moments. Also, Brad's act is over an hour long- impressive! Most comedians put in their 30 mins and you are revving up as an audience just as they suddenly shut down the show- not so with Stine.
I am giving this DVD 4 stars, rather than 5, only because the previous Stine work, Brad Stine: A Conservative Unleashed, was, well...better. In the prior outing Brad played to a smaller theater venue and the camera work was better able to display his act. In Tolerate This! Brad is playing to a huge stadium-style audience and the impact of Brad's jokes is lessened(though still far superior to 90% of the comedy out there).
If you are a Christian Conservative(about 50% of the country mind you) then this DVD is for you. I would suggest that you first grab Brad Stine: A Conservative Unleashed because it is a better primer for what Brad is all about. That being said, the two DVD's compliment each other nicely because Brad obviously took care in not using retread jokes from one show to the next. You can't have too much of a good thing.
Well tolerated ...

"Brad Stine shows that born again Christians can be fuuny to! He didn't give a sermon, but he worked the Bible into the act very well. This is a DVD that ALL people will enjoy ... religious or not. He may step on a few toes with his style, but all around this is a great DVD that even the kids can watch."
Hilarious and Thought Provoking

"Our family loves Brad Stine! My kids quote some of his lines when the situation fits and we laugh again! I am so glad we have a comedian who doesn't use fowl language to try to be funny. He is also one who stands up for the Judeo-Christian principles with which our great country was founded. With humor he gets one to think about these things and join the army to fight for keeping our freedom and one nation under God."
Tolerated, but disapointed..

"Maybe my expectations were set too high, but "Tolerate This" frankly wasn't all that funny. Not that the material didn't hold some humor in it, but I rarely found myself having much of a laugh at any time during the show."
